I’m having a ‘Holy Crap’ moment!

It’s happened a few times in my life.  I remember them all.

I am talking about those moments when you achieve a result, receive a sign or have a door open; when something happens to you that you know you will always remember as a sign of your accomplishments, your perseverance, your gumption or sheer dumb luck.

Call me wacky (my friends think I am nuts) but I am freaking out about the fact that I just got an email from Topher Delaney (she says I’m FABULOUS – and yes she used all caps).  It ranks right up there with the day I came home to a voice mail from Diarmuid Gavin wanting me to come for a job interview (which I totally blew with own inability to have a normal conversation with a personal idol).  Or when Margaret Roach made a comment on a post about wreaths… or when Germy the Germinatrix of Domino fame asked me (in a comment) ‘where had I been’ all her life.   Maybe I am easily flattered..but I am flying high as a kite right now…Thanks Topher.

I love blogging.  I get to help people, be creative, celebrate what I love, the people I admire, and the talents of my colleagues – except for an income, I couldn’t ask for anything more.

Has this type of thing happened to you?  I would love to hear about it.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    I am brand new to the world of blogging and networking so I haven’t had someone I admire acknowledge me in that way yet. The closest thing for me was when my mentor complimented my work. I have had gratitude and recognition from clients, though, that has reinforced my conviction that I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing!
